Dear Donors: THANK YOU!!!

 

Back in the early 1980s, Nestle was pushing a certain candy bar big time. There were TV commercials and everything (maybe–who can remember all that?). Anyway, they product they were pitching was the 100 Grand bar. Pretty tasty. Chocolate, caramel, crisped rice, maybe some nutty concoction thrown in for good measure. It was a quality product. And 100 Grand? That was a pretty penny. How could it NOT be good?!?

Well 100 grand is still a pretty penny in some places–like NNEMAP Food Pantry. And thanks to ALL of our donors and sponsors, we just pulled in OVER 100 grand through the CenturyLink Campaign to Fight Hunger. This event, featuring generous matching funds from the Clarke M. Williams Foundation, concluded on the night of June 15. We just got our final tally–with donations and matching funds, NNEMAP Food Pantry will soon be getting $102,109.39 to put into our piggy bank. Let me say that again:

$102,109.39

That’s a lot of candy bars! Or, actually, that’s a lot of healthier food choices (we like to make sure our neighbors have wholesome selections when they come to shop!). Maybe with that extra 39 cents we can get one of these:

The short-lived Reggie! bar presented an 8-year-old with a relative bargain at 25 cents back in 1980. As one former Reggie Jackson teammate quipped, “When you open a Reggie bar, it tells you how good it is.”

I’m not about to compare our donors to a candy bar–but I will tell you how great you are. Your response to this rare matching funds opportunity exceeded our wildest expectations. We are grateful for your continued generosity. It is truly not possible to thank you enough for your support. I will say, however, that I was always partial to the 100 Grand!

On behalf of the staff, volunteers, board of directors and, most importantly, the thousands of neighbors we serve–THANK YOU!!!!!

Call–and Incredible Response!

Last month NNEMAP Food Pantry was invited again to participate in the CenturyLink “Backpack Buddies” fundraiser. This campaign promises matching funds of at least 75 cents on the dollar thanks to the generosity of the Clarke M. Williams Foundation. That’s a great deal no matter how you look at it. 

After last year’s successful fund drive netted over $20,000 in total donations, NNEMAP challenged you, our donors, fans and supporters, to make this year’s event even better. Leave it to an organization supported by dozens of churches to understand the old ‘call and response’ routine, because did you ever respond!

NNEMAP’s donor individuals, churches and other organizations contributed over $37,000 toward the Backpack Buddies campaign. The Clarke M. Williams Foundation matched that nearly dollar for dollar. When all was said and done, NNEMAP was blessed with over $70,000 in total cash donations!

There’s really only one thing to say:

THANK YOU!!!!

Matching Funds Drive Still Going!

In case it has slipped your mind, the extremely generous matching funds drive is still going on. We know you are enjoying a busy late spring/early summer. But with last year’s tax returns still fresh in your mind, what better time to make a tax-deductible gift* to your favorite charity?  (* please consult an accountant or tax professional!)

Anyway, there’s no need to scramble to make your donations at the end of the year–donate now and get the most out of your gift. In cooperation with CenturyLink, the Clarke M. Williams Foundation is putting up $1 million in matching funds. The anticipated match is a minimum of 75 cents for every dollar you donate. Last year’s match was an extraordinary $3 for every $1 donated to NNEMAP. You can’t get a much better deal for a charity than that. 

This amazing offer ends Friday, June 16th. For all of you wait-’til-the-last-minute types, consider yourself warned. Hey–we’re here to help!

On behalf of the roughly 8,000 people who will come to NNEMAP for food assistance at some point this year, thank you for your generous support!

Century Link Matching Funds Event is Back!

Communications giant CenturyLink and the Clarke M. Williams Foundation have generously supported NNEMAP’s operations over the years. Last year, CenturyLink transitioned that support to an online virtual food drive. The fundraising effort promised to match donations up to 75% of the dollar amount given. So a $100 donation would become $175 thanks to matching funds. Brilliant!

As it turned out, CenturyLink blessed NNEMAP with about a 300% match last year. In 2016 our supporters donated about $5,000 and our total take from CenturyLink was over $20,000!!! For an organization with an operating cash budget just north of $200,000, that’s a huge score!

Please consider donating generously again this year. All donations are processed online through credit card payments. To donate now, click here to go straight to the donation page. Once there you will have to…

1. Enter the dollar amount you would like to donate

2. Scroll down the page and select NNEMAP (participants are listed alphabetically by state, so you have to scroll down a ways to find us)
